For the month of August, the NYP PPS is showcasing the Care Transitions to Reduce 30-Day Readmissions project. With the global DSRIP goal to reduce preventable hospital use by 25%, it is clear why this project is crucial to the success in achieving this goal. The focus of the Transitions of Care (ToC) team is to improve continuity of care and bridge the inpatient setting with any necessary follow-up care for adults who present high risk for readmission for medical or psychosocial reasons.
The Mexican Coalition, or Coalicion Mexicana, operating since 2013, has achieved a far-reaching and comprehensive impact in their nearly three years of service. Though their physical address is located in the South Bronx, their goal, according to the organization’s President Jairo Guzman, is to go where the need is. Their mission is to “strengthen individual, organizational and community capacities to enable the Mexican and Latin American community to realize their aspirations for full integration – civic, cultural, and political within American Society.”
For the month of August, we would like to introduce Dr. Margaret R. Nolan DNP, GNP-C, ACHPN, who works as a Nurse Practitioner for NYP and is an integral member of the NYP PPS Palliative Care Project. This project is working to expand access for the Medicaid population to enhanced palliative care and support for patients with advanced illness and their families.
